No matter how gently Mama pulls as she combs Keyana's hair, it still hurts. Keyana doesn't feel lucky to have such a head of hair, but Mama tells her she is because she can wear it any way she chooses. Natasha Tarpley's whimsical, evocative text encourages black children to not only feel good about their special hair, but also to feel proud of their heritage. In his expressive watercolor illustrations, E.B. Lewis perfectly captures the characters of this simple story.
